Sherlock burst into the lab, charging over to where Molly was working. She glanced up briefly, but then returned her safety glasses shielded gaze back to the biopsy she was working with.
“Oh, hi. Is there something-”
“I think you should realize that in all reality I am not as impressive I sometimes act,” he fired off a bit breathlessly.
Molly straightened up and frowned. “Pardon?”
“Look, Molly…” He took a deep breath and blew it out slowly. “I explained this to John many years ago and I’ll explain it to you as well…I am no hero. I’m not superhuman or invincible, despite the way I may behave at times. But you, you are…remarkable.”
Molly slowly removed her glasses, eyes staying riveted to his.
“You are brave and selfless to a fault. You care about others and their feelings and wellbeing so very deeply, and would go to amazing lengths to help them. The way you live your life and treat others…” He paused, slowly shaking his head in quiet awe. “It makes you deserving of a very special sort of life…with…someone.”
She swallowed thickly while pulling her gloves off.
“A-and despite how I may…feel,” he said, appearing to taste the new words in his mouth with nervous curiosity. “I am afraid that perhaps I may not be- that is, for you I may not be enough of-”
“Sherlock,” Molly jumped in quickly. “I think I’ll stop you right there.”
He paused, raising a brow in question.
She smiled, quickly putting away what she had been working on. “I’ve got to get a report to a doctor upstairs, so maybe you can give me a few minutes and wait here?”
The corners of his delicious lips turned downward and he looked rather adorably injured at what must have seemed to him like disinterest, or perhaps even agreement with his concerns. Molly reached in her lab coat pocket though, before leaving, and handed him her phone and earbuds.
“Here,” she said while tapping the screen a few times. “Put these in and press play. And when I come back maybe you’ll have a clearer idea of where I stand on this issue.”
Sherlock took the device hesitantly but nodded in agreement, putting the earbuds in place. He hit play and she smiled at him before walking out the door.
Molly came back into the lab about five minutes later to see Sherlock greet her with a soft smile. She crossed the room to him slowly and accepted his return of her phone and earbuds.
“So…what did you think of the song?”
Sherlock gazed affectionately into her eyes, answering her in a low whisper. “Do you mean it?”
Molly nodded, smiled, and draped her arms around his neck. “I don’t want a hero or a fairytale or anything that’s out of the ordinary. This is enough- you are enough. You always have been. I don’t care how much you believe you fall short, because it doesn’t change how I feel about you. And what’s more, I know exactly what I want.”
“Something just like this?” Sherlock asked with a little smirk as he slid his hands around her waist.
Molly grinned. “Nice listening comprehension, detective. So, if you’re so smart, according to the song,” she went on softly, tugging him down a bit. “What else do I want?”
Sherlock feigned a thoughtful expression as he eyes her lips and bent further forward. “It seems…the very same thing that I do,” he whispered.
As their lips met and they became blissfully wrapped up in each other, they both finally felt like things were as they should be. Which didn’t mean it was a fairytale, no. It was far more simply and ordinary than all that. But they did each have something they wanted- someone they wanted.
Food for thought……….sometimes coincidence is a plan in disguise….
WOW! Our girl looks like a goddess in the new photo shoot! What a treat to see her in Coco’s abode. She mentioned serving dinner and I do wonder what she would cook, Maybe her pasta or even a grilled cheese. I had one with Brie and cheddar yesterday that was delicious but hard to beat a croque monsieur in Paris! Meanwhile her handsome man is having a GREAT TIME with Good Time in NYC (one of my fav places you know). Hard to beat a New York hot dog! (hold the mustard for me though)
R: I miss you
K: You just saw us
R: so I can’t miss you?
K: Miss you more
R: It was amazing. No one even knew you were there.
K: you and your affinity for disguises
R: they served us well. We had a good time
K: a GREAT time! You know she hasn’t put that doll down
R: it was a great time except that you stopped me from buying more
K: DUDE. You can’t buy her everything in that store! I thought the whole point was not to draw attention to ourselves. If I let you buy all the shit you wanted they would ask for some kind of ID. You can’t just pay in wads of cash like you just robbed a bank
R: you said I made a good robber
K: I said rad robber
R: that was a rad ice cream sundae
K: still can’t believe she ate the whole thing
R: still can’t believe they didn’t have grilled cheese. That’s her favorite but your grilled cheese is the best. They make me melt
K: you are such a dork! You make ME melt
R: she ate the pigs in a blanket because you told her they were mini hot dogs. And…….
I have a hot dog for you
K: um. That’s hardly a mini hot dog
R: can you eat the whole thing?
K: omg stfu
R: thanks for being there
K: you think I would have missed it? I’m so proud of you
R: you know I love you more than hot dogs?
K: speaking of……….your twitter groupies were salivating over your hot dog short
R: I told you honey. There is nothing short about my hot dog
K: stop reminding me how much I miss you
R: you have a Twitter acct now?
K: FUCK NO. But apparently you do……….. Or was that just a “rumor”
R: who comes up with some of that shit?
K: dude. You tell so many stories nobody knows what’s real
R: that’s the point isn’t it? let the stories be told. They can say what they want
K: chaos. confusion. disguises. Let the good times roll! Got it
R: you’ve always had it honey
K: you have too
R: by the way Happy Anniversary
R: it’s on Twitter so it must be true
K: WTF are you talking about
R: today is Bella and Edward’s anniversary
K: oh shit. Sorry dude. How could I forget.
R: you wanna play honeymoon?
K: yeah. you wanna nibble my neck?
R: I wanna make you melt. Sounds kinda cheesy
K: I happen to have a thing for cheesy and yeah you always do. I love you
R: yeah. I love you more
So sweet Maya
Here’s a great song by The Cars. Have you ever heard it? Love the lyrics. Let The Good Times Roll. It’s going to be OK.
Every time I listen to the currents I imagine dan writing a massive rant about everything wrong with Donald trump and then just picking out words that might sound good as lyrics like ‘Kyle nothing rhymes with orange’ 'ok have you tried cheeto? Dickhead??’ and then finally deciding to just make it ambiguous because Nigel farage exists too
